SHEBBEAR GP SURGERY CLOSES WITHOUT NOTICE

WHY ARE WE CONCERNED?

Mid June 2018
Amanda Fisk, director of assurance and delivery at NHS England, said: “We’re really pleased to award the contract to Holsworthy Doctors. Their submission was impressive, especially its focus on the needs of patients and the quality of service"

28th June 2018
It was discovered that the surgery will close a month earlier than planned with less than 24hrs notice. Ruby Country Medical Group told patients that Shebbear Village Hall will be used and what times, despite the fact that they hadn't inspected the hall or contacted those responsible for letting it to see if it was available or had a phone of Wi-Fi.

Eventually, after much speculation on social media the first public announcement was not released directly but through the Village Hall chair about ongoing surgery plans from 2nd July onwards. This still had timings that couldn't be adhered to due to previous Village Hall bookings. No mention was made of prescriptions which were previously denied to patients.

Despite the booking of the Village Hall hasty site visits to The Church Hall and the Village Hall were made on Sunday 1st to see the sites to make a final decision. The Village Hall was chosen and the surgery times corrected.
